These guidelines provide information on how to safely enjoy holiday celebrations while reducing the potential spread of COVID-19. To reduce the spread of COVID-19, consider how you can modify your holiday plans to keep your friends, families and communities healthy and safe.
- People should not participate in any winter activities if they are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. If you think you may be sick, use the online Saskatchewan COVID-19 self-assessment tool and follow the directions.
- Shopping malls, box stores and retail facilities planning holiday-based events must do so in compliance with the public health order. Please refer to the Clothing and Retail Guidelines. Events that typically involve close contact between individuals not from the same household (i.e. photos with Santa, Santa's workshop, gift wrapping, interactive displays, charitable collections) must be modified to occur in a manner so that physical distancing can be maintained.
- This may include having barriers around Santa, having Santa in the background (i.e. on a stage) that people walk by and have photos taken, etc.
- All transactions or interactions should be contactless wherever possible.
